Activator adjusting device
This is a chiropractic hand held device that delivers a controlled and measurable thrust. It is applied
to articulations that have been determined to have faulty biomechanics. The thrust delivered by the
device is extremely rapid and the acceleration transmitted into the joint is the physical property that
seeks to rectify biomechanical harmony.
A pair of padded wedges are positioned under specific points of the patient’s pelvis when lying
down, either face up or down. This is a slow and stretching technique as gravity is used to introduce
into the pelvic and/or low back articulations a gradual force in the particular direction that seeks to
de-rotate the pelvic distortion.
This technique is applied by the hands of the practitioner. The particular joint that has been
determined to be faulty is put under tension and a sudden movement of the hands imparts a force.
This physical property applied to the joint frees the bones and seeks to achieve a closer to normal
motion within the articulation.
